Fiambre is the most famous dish from Guatemala, a large salad that is traditionally prepared for the Day of the Dead and All Saints’ Day. It is consumed in memory of the loved ones who have passed away. The salad can have as many as 50 ingredients in it, such as sliced meat, cheese, vegetables, pickles, and hard-boiled eggs.
There are numerous varieties of the salad, such as fiambre rojo, made with beets, and fiambre blanco, made without beets. Fiambre verde is a vegetarian version, while fiambre desarmado is prepared in a way to make all of the ingredients separate, allowing the consumers to combine ingredients according to their personal preference.
